Luis Carlos Fontalvo - Founding pastor

Pastor Fontalvo was born in Columbia (South America), where he accepted Christ at the age of 12.

In 1968, while he was pursuing his studies in theology in Fredericton, New-Brunswick, he received his call for the province of Quebec.

He got married in 1971 and established his family in Montreal where he founded the EAJC. The first years of ministry were blessed by the spiritual rebirth of men and women, who eventually became pillars of the present congregation.

In 1986, his first wife passed away and in 1987, Pastor Fontalvo married our beloved Sister Catherine. Together, they became a source of inspiration and advice for many believers and workers.

After 40 years of ministry, Pastor Fontalvo passed away in April 2011. He was Senior Pastor and president of the EAJC network during all these decades.
